And, according to Scobie, he could not have written the same book today.

“I guess it were a case of the right timing because if I wanted to do that book again now, I don’t think any of these people would want to speak because the couple can speak for themselves,” he admitted. “They’re in a different place now.” 

Scobie also clarified how he has unprecedented royal access.

“People really want to sort of connect me to Meghan as a friend, as an unofficial spokesperson. Unfortunately, none of that is true,” Scobie stated. “As a royal correspondent, you get to know the palace staff really well so that team around Harry and Meghan really were there to help us throughout the process, as were a lot of their friends who could see a couple that were unable to speak for themselves. It was all sort of bound by the palace’s ‘Never complain, never explain’ mantra, and felt like, ‘Hang on a second, I want to speak up for my friend.'”
